The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Iranian government have agreed to allow inspectors to access two Iranian facilities in order to rule out the possibility that they have carried out banned nuclear activities, in a gesture of rapprochement with which they want to move forward in confidence “after Months of tension.
The international body increased its pressure on Tehran after experts repeatedly denied access to facilities in Isfahan province and near the capital. In June the IAEA Board of Governors passed its first anti-Iranian resolution since the signing of the nuclear deal in 2015.
The Director of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, made an official visit to Tehran on Tuesday, which resulted in the Iranian commitment to “voluntarily” facilitate access to the two facilities and also to carry out “screening activities” to exclude prohibited work. .
Grossi and the head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, have confirmed this agreement in a joint statement in which they have stated that the two parties have already agreed when the visits will take place, possibly “after intensive examination” bilateral consultations ” .
